for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yesterday and if he goes out on the stump latter today and attack romney and starts talking about binders and big bird and stuff that. while tens of millions of people are in harmy way that doesn't look presidential. >> i think he will look presidential. it will be a big moment for the president not only for him but our government and fema to be on the main stage. it is it an opportunity for surrogates to mentioned that romney would eliminate fema. the conventional wisdom. low turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is e
been, in my opinion, very forward-leaning and proactive. we have representatives here from fema, we have assets that the federal government has brought in, including the fast water rescue teams that are here. and the president signed our prelandfall declaration, i think first among all of the states that applied. so, the new fema is greatly improved, and we're very appreciative for the very cooperative way in which we've been going about this. we had a conference call yesterday that the president himself initiated, with all of the governors, including mayor stephanie rawlings-make and the mayor of philadelphia and others up and down the east coast. and that's what you would expect your government to do. especially in times like this, we should be working together as one team and that's what we're doing. that is, though, an improvement from not too many years ago, when typically, you would only see fema and the federal help arrive after the disaster hit. anyone else? >> a little bit of [ inaudible question ] >> sure. let me call up colonel brown. colonel, do you want to talk about th
